While we're talkin' about starters, I just had to through this out there..."Otis" has a black starter LOL, I'm assuming that was a replacement when he went through the "Blue Ribbon" program....

The entire mag was masked off, at least in the early days of Cub production. If you look closely at ricky racer and wfmdfm's pictures you can see it has some sort of bag over it.
A LOT of stuff got shot red, even the gearshift knob. Like Dusti there are some things I prefer unpainted just because it looks better. Anyway, Guy Fay's Letter Series Originality Guide listed the stuff that they masked off in the '39--'54 era. Basically if it was an electrical connection it was masked off. I can't remember if they left plug wires unpainted or not. If I can remember where my book is, I will check tonight.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.
All this navy and army talk about painting standards makes me want to share the coast guard's standard:
"One coat for dust, two for rust..."
"I had rather be on my farm than be emperor of the world."
Looks like this is fresh out of the dip tank!!
